Let’s take this drug off our streets

February 14, 2013

Michelle Berry, A Fresh Perspective
Last week’s Borger City Council meeting turned out to be more of an educational experience than I expected. It opened my eyes to new information of which I wasn’t aware, and made me want to do all I can to help a particular cause.
In case you’re wondering what I’m talking about, this new information came to light during the public forum time of the meeting when local citizen and mom April Gibbs spoke to the council about almost losing her son after he attempted to take his own life while under the influence of a drug known as K2.

I snuggled down in the recliner, my Bible, The Upper Room and Jesus Calling rested in my lap.
And our awesome Papa was in the chair beside me, a meaningful way to begin the new day.
We were up but the sun was not.
The coffee was hot and my heart was warm.
The New Year, only three days old, stretched before me.
Genesis and the story of Isaac filled my mind. Grieving the death of his mother, Rebecca walked into his heart and his tent and he was comforted.
Then he buried his righteous father and Isaac began the struggle to make his way in life.

Megan Parr, Hutchinson County Extension Agent
A new year typically brings a fresh start.
Many people set resolutions, or goals, to reach for the year. Typically, these goals consist of weight loss, exercise, quit smoking, or just being healthy.
How many people think of their finances when they think about being healthy? Not many!
